Tom de Vries, director of Dutch superyacht-builder Feadship, is to deliver the keynote speech at this year’s International Superyacht Coatings Conference (ISCC) in Amsterdam.

Organised by Amsterdam RAI in association with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) and the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss), ISCC is a business-to-business event that specialises in superyacht coating processes and related rules and legislation.

Held from December 11-12, the two-day programme will explore a range of subjects including coatings contracting and delivery; inspection and assessments; the demands of legislation; surface preparations and their effects on coating quality; and the measurement and maintenance of coatings.

ISCC will provide delegates the chance to learn about and discuss the latest developments in the field of coatings with the industry’s key stakeholders, to influence future developments in the industry and to network with international colleagues from the global world of superyacht coatings.
